Ted White packs up his hockey masks and jets off to Chicago this week after hearing that several Chicagoans
missed his last appearance there, and where in dire need of his treasured signature. "You have to keep up with the demand". -- Brian Oblak is back in action, guesting in a pilot for a new anthology series for the Bravo network, called "Dirty John". It stars Eric Bana & Connie Britton. She is currently starring in "911" and recently did "Nashville" for five seasons. We know a retired agent who would have loved a client like that. -- Not to be undone, Bill Lewis has begun his second season of "I'm Sorry" shooting an episode last month, and has two more to do in August. -- Due to the make-up of our group, we have no weddings, births or other juicy gossip to report, so stay cool! -- Well, here it is again, the dog days of summer, which means, it's ’Jim’ birthday month. Yes, Raymond celebrates on the 14th, Jacobs on the 25th, and Dodds gets his on the 30th.
